Here is an idea for a reality show. Instead of seeing what people will eat or do for $50,000 (not enough in my book). Give people two kids (one of them has to be a really good whiner) a husband who works twelve hours and has an important calling like EQP. Put them in back to school time give them no car and tell them they have to go grocery shopping, hem pants, make doctors appointments, get to them, help their inlaws get ready to move, work out, eat right, pay bills, clean house (difficult task all on its own because inlaws are constantly bringing over stuff that you have no room for), blog, start up a new business, laundry, plan an enrichment pratically all by themselves, sub in Sunday school, watch the neighbour's kids, do a food drive for over 100 houses, and all of the regular mom things that one does in a day to keep from beating her children. Put them in this pressure cooker and see them crumble and for what a mere $50,000. This is my life. I chose to commit myself to these things. I shouldn't be complaining but I think I really need to learn to say NO once in a while.
